Webinar: Point-in-Time Count Town Hall With Experts
The Canadian Observatory on Homelessness hosted a webinar on Wednesday, March 16th at 1:00 – 2:30 EST. The town hall was an opportunity to ask questions about PiT Count planning and implementation. Christina Maes Nino, coordinator of Winnipeg’s first Street Census, and Wally Czech, coordinator of the Lethbridge Point-in-Time Count, were available to answer questions based on their previous experiences as local PiT Count Coordinators. Representatives from the Homelessness Partnering Strategy and the Canadian Observatory on Homelessness’ National PiT Count Coordinator were also in attendance to answer questions about the PiT Count methodology and the 2016 Coordinated PiT Count. The experts covered topics such as: stakeholder engagement; working with shelters, health facilities, correctional facilities and others; survey design and development of local questions; volunteer training and recruitment; data input and analysis; calculating your enumeration; reporting back to the community; the HPS Core Standards.
